Crevette Posted May 28, 2008 Share Posted May 28, 2008 I was made redundant last year (end December) whilst on a detatchment agreement in France (paid social charges in UK but income tax in France for four years) then I started a new job (french contract) and am into month five of this.Now the employer has said they don't want to keep me on... I was already looking for other jobs as I didn't like this one, but all the same it was a surprise.They have said I can go at the end of next week (although by french law I can stay to the end of the contract if I like).Now some friends have pointed out that I don't meet the french unemployment benefit conditions if I leave at end of next week, so they say I should stay (I'm not too keen on this as I don't like the job!).The question is, does my detatchment agreement count for anything? (I was made redundant from this)? If I understand, I need 6 months social security to be entitled to unemployment benefit but I am unsure if the time working in france but paid from the UK counts.All help much appreciated.Regards,Rob Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
